EYESORES: Residents frustrated with overflown bins in Stanmore

 Published on: 10th May 2022   |   By: Christina Pantelly   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents of Stanmore are frustrated with overflown bins and lack of care by Harrow Council.

Brewers pond, in Stanmore Common is well used by locals who visit the park. During the summer months rubbish has been “dumped” around the bins.

Bruce Temple, who lives nearby and a frequent user of the park, said: “The bin overflows with people dumping rubbish and leaving black bags full of BBQ rubbish for the foxes to rip up. I have asked for many years for either a large hopper bin or extra bins to be provided during the summer.

“If the council supplied a big wheely bin this would be resolved, but the council say they can’t do this because it can’t be collected. But it can be collected because there is a pathway on the road.”

Harrow council have also taped up a dog bin on Little Common, which Bruce has been urging the council to remove.

He continued: “Years of trying to get it removed, which would have been more logical had no success. Lazy dog owners still tie their filled bags to the disused bin, surely it can be removed.”

Harrow Council has been contacted for comment.

    Something is not right here with the councils management they’re just sitting on their back sides?!
    They have put up CCTV to steal monies from public where it’s not needed and here where this is a major health and safety matter they’re not doing anything about it. The head of Harrow council or the person in charge of this area needs to be replaced as they’re not doing their jobs , only making excuses after excuses . This park should be regularly monitored weekly in the summer period to keep it cleaned but yet again nothing is being done like this .
